From a comment thread below:

About distrust of Opus Dei. Could it be a distrust of organizations? I am a citizen of the United States and of the state of California. Only their tax collectors and a few other government agencies know I exist. I am a member of the Catholic Church. The Pope doesn't know I exist; my bishop doesn't know I exist. My pastor does but only thanks to my initiative. I know the church isn't an earthly organization but within the church there are organizations akin to earthly organizations. I don't want any earthly or half earthly organization breathing down my neck any more than possible. Secular government is a necessary evil. The church I accept to bind my conscience. But sub churches within the church to further bind me--no thank you.
